    Has anyone done this swap? I like the 15-17 gear ratios better. Is this a simple swap in with no mods needed?

    I think that you're better off switching the gear ratio at the differential than switching transmissions. I believe that you will lose the Rev Matching feature with a different transmission.

    seems to have alot less problems from the 15-17 mt82. I don't have problems out of mine. I run that SOB all the way up to 7500 RPMS after my long tube header, 2018 manifold, and tune was done. Never had an issue.

    No problems here after MGW shifter and BG Syncro Shift® II. Shifts like an absolute dream.

    However, the 18+ received better synchros and and bronze shift fork guides.
